The Sacred Journey

On 11/9 icrucified wrote: This last book of the Ancient Practices Series has been one of the more challenging and difficult books for me to read in the most recent couple of years. I’ve had it in my possession for some while, but haven’t brought myself to sit down with it and read it. The reason for my procrastination is ... The Sacred Journey

The Voice New Testament

The Voice New Testament

On 1/22 icrucified wrote: I received a copy of the Voice New Testament from Thomas Nelson for review. I’m not sure if I like it or not. My first impressions are a mixed bag; there are definitely some things that I like, but there are also things that I do not like. Let me explain my reasons… It goes without saying ...

The Sacred Meal 2

The Sacred Meal 2

On 12/9 icrucified wrote: The Sacred Meal by Nora Gallagher is a delightful book; period. There was nothing that I disliked or even remotely found issue within its contents. This is a lofty claim when speaking about something as sacramental as the Eucharist or Lord’s Supper. There are very diverse and polarizing positions regarding ... Delightful

Called to Worship

Called to Worship

On 11/3 icrucified wrote: Called to Worship is a wonderful resource to me. While it is an easy read, I find it even more valuable as a reference, resource, and continuing reminder for the prominence that worship plays in our relationship with God. While I fancy myself a “creative” and “free” worshipper, I am more prone ... Excellent Resource and Reference

A Million Miles in a Thousand Years

A Million Miles in a Thousand Years

On 9/29 icrucified wrote: It didn’t take me very long to get sucked into Don Miller’s latest “story.” While I’m well aware of the human condition and the journey with Jesus being a messy proposition at times (ok, most of the time), I’m not real keen on the whole idea of “messy spirituality” being the norm. After ... A Bigger and Better Story

The Principle of the Path (Hardcover)

The Principle of the Path (Hardcover)

On 6/22 icrucified wrote: “Every path leads somewhere…and the road I’m on always determines where I end up. Direction—not intention—determines our destination.” This is the substance of The Principle of the Path by Andy Stanley. While some of this may seem rather pedantic, the evidence of our lives as well as the ... Fresh Words - Timeless Truth

The Noticer

The Noticer

On 4/27 icrucified wrote: If you enjoyed the television series, “Touched By An Angel”, you’ll enjoy this book. Just as the angels in the series are sent by God into people’s lives to bring perspective and insight before it’s too late, “The Noticer” appears throughout the book for the same purpose. He is described ... Common Wisdom Noticed

The Word of Promise The Gift of Psalms

The Word of Promise The Gift of Psalms

On 2/13 icrucified wrote: I really liked this little devotional…for a number of reasons. First, it is aesthetically pleasing. It is hardbound with a padded cover and “feels” very good in my hands. The pages on the inside are printed on a semi-glossy stock quality paper and embossed with a simulated texture that I find ... The Word of Promise: The Gift of Psalms

For The Tough Times

For The Tough Times

On 1/5 icrucified wrote: If you are familiar at all with Christian literature, you will recognize the name of Max Lucado. I think he is probably among the most (if not the most) prolific writers of our day. I only make this point to say any critique or comment that I may have to offer isn’t going to be in the realm of technical ... Book Review: For these Tough Times

The Orthodox Study Bible

On 12/11 icrucified wrote: Let me begin this review to say that I am a Christian; my experience in Christianity is Protestant with a history beginning in the Baptist church then migrating to the “Jesus Movement” and the charismatic.
